Fox to air last four Arrested Development episodes



". . . the network has decided to air the season's final four episodes in one two-hour block Friday, Feb. 10. That night also happens to feature the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics on NBC, an event that is likely to dominate the ratings that night."


At least we get to say goodbye. It will be a sad night indeed.

The Weekend

I was just reading that the weekend, here in the states, wasn't the weekend until 1940. Wow. Wasn't the weekend mentioned in the bible? "Then, on the evening of the 5th day, god said let there be happy hour. God and his coworkers spent happy hour at the mad amigo and it was good. . ."

Maybe its the young-smart-ass-punk-hippie in me, but I cannot fathom life without a weekend. WITHOUT A WEEKEND! Now, I know not all people have the ability to celebrate the traditional weekend-early Friday afternoon, till late Sunday night. Even if one has to work the weekend, they are usually thrown 2 free days somewhere in the mix. Most of the time. Well, at my last job I had to work every other Saturday, 830am-12pm. And you know where I was working? Communist Russia, circa 1979. I made those giant fuzzy fur hats that are all the rage with Russian population of (drunken)men. Viva! Ivan Drago!

Actually, I wouldn't mind extending the weekend. Say Saturday, Sunday and Monday. The employers are still winning, 65-35. Who the hell said we had to work 5 days a week anyway? I realize our "production" is what makes the world go round, economy wise, and I think 5 days a week was mentioned in a song, but christ, what is money if we can't enjoy it?

So, come and join me, and start your weekend with me, in 7 hours; Give or take a lunch.

Is this thing on?

This morning, at 6AM, well, more like 610am, Howard Stern made his debut on Sirius satellite radio. When I woke up this morning at 605am I proceeded on out to the kitchen, for I knew the Sirius sportster boombox would be pumping out audio delight in the form of a one, Howard Stern. Instead, my mom (i'm moving out soon), like a medieval crooked-eyed peasant looking for food, grabbed me, and sounding very desperate said, "I can't hear him. I have 3 bars of service but there is no sound (my mom is a long time stern fan, since I was little. I remember my mom listening to it when I was little, I do not remember comprehending anything, I thought my mom was listening to a news show)" Me, not being a morning person, with a eye booger in the corner of my eye replied, "Call Sirius."

While eating my reese's peanutbutter cup cereal at the kitchen table, next to the boombox, something happened. I'm not sure what that something was but it caused The Howard Stern Show to finally come on the boombox at a blaring volume. I mean it was loud. My mom, in searching for an answer to the lack of Stern at the 6 o'clock hour on her radio must have turned the volume all the way uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuup. I should have realized this since I could hear the sound of static emitting from the radio at very audible level.

Once Stern got on the air he explained along with his cohorts that they were having many technical difficulties. Fred's soundboard wasn't working, the phones weren't working, and Artie said something about his computer.

Update: My mom called me at 745ish and all is well. Stern wasn't having anymore difficulties. I asked how the show was going. She said, so far, for the skits they have done, they have been a bit raunchy-er.


PS

I saw Hostel this weekend. This movie surpassed my expectations. I was impressed. I was a fan of Cabin Fever, I might be one of the few fans of it. Hostel, I thought, was better than Cabin Fever. One weird thing. Before the movie came on, the house lights came up and an usher with a mic step in front of the screen and proceeded to speak into the mic. He was a fat awkward looking fellow. He was up there to give away "prizes" (Mission Impossible: III posters). To win you just needed to answer a simple question. Before I go on let me say this. I have never seen this type of crap go on before. I have been going to this theater for about 8 years and never in those 8 years has a awkward teenage usher gotten on the mic to ask question to give out prizes. It was some BS. When I'm in theater I just want to get down to business. Show me the previews then get on with the game.
